Trivia:

According to director Renny Harlin, he originally wanted Franzén to play of Medieval Priest (the first character seen on the movie) in Exorcist: The Beginning (2004), but Franzén was busy and couldn't make it. He was replaced by another Finnish actor, Matti Ristinen. In 2007 Franzén had a cameo role in Harlin's Cleaner (2007). See more »
